K-9 sniffs out 624 pounds of marijuana inside U-Haul in Florida

The Florida Highway Patrol is praising the super-sniffing skills of a K-9, which helped them make a big drug bust in Florida this week.

FHP Orlando tweeted that K-9 Piet alerted troopers to 624 pounds of marijuana being smuggled in the back of a U-Haul truck in Orlando.

Law enforcement said both the driver and passenger were arrested on Tuesday night.

The street value of the marijuana is $5.6 million, according to the FHP.
